This is the 18th Valetine's Day Mike and I have celebrated, making this a good opportunity to reflect on why I like the guy, although Mike has already beaten me to the punch this year.
I am a big fan of Letterman's Top ten lists, so here goes with mine:
Top Ten Reasons To Like Mike
10- He makes me laugh every day. Well, almost every day, some days he goes snowmobiling.
9- He loves to shop. If I express the slightest amount of interest, he starts in with "Get it," "Buy it," "I love it - get it," "if you want it get it," and so on until the item lands in my cart.
8- He notices when I have a new haircut. Usually. Or at least he fakes it really well.
7- He always remembers my birthday without a reminder. And the prsents have gotten WAY better. (His first holiday gift to me was maternity underwear........ so we had a lot of room to grow from there LOL)
6- He loves his boys and is always proud of them, he is a very attentive dad. (Unless he's snowmobiling.) Seriously, he never misses a game, a program, a conference, or any other event and he is the loudest cheerleader there.
5- He likes to clean the house with me. We are still working on getting his laundry put away, but no one is perfect.
4- He makes me breakfast on Sunday mornings. Used to be omelettes, hash browns, and bagels in the chubby days, now it's Southwest Egg Beaters and dry Flaxseed toast. Still good and I don't have to cook it. Yeah, Mike.
3- He tells me I am beautiful every day, no matter what I look like. What girl wouldn't love that??
2- He always drives, pumps gas, and fixes my stuff. I never have to figure out where the oil goes, how to put something together, or how to make my damn computer quit acting up. He just does it, sometimes without asking.
1- He pushes me to do the best that I can and be the best that I can be, and supports me every inch of the way.
Happy Valentines Day M-Dot - I heart you!
